About Us

The Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society's flagship event - the annual Pembrokeshire County Show - is the biggest three-day agricultural show in Wales.

Every year visitors, competitors and exhibitors arrive in their droves to take part in the Pembrokeshire County Show. The Show is a highly regarded event with a long tradition, it has close connections to our agricultural and rural community, and is a favourite day out in the summer calendar for thousands of people, both from Pembrokeshire and further afield.

The Society was formed in 1784. In 1985 it became a registered charity for the "Improvement and Encouragement of Agriculture, particularly in the County of Pembrokeshire". Over the years the Society has thrived in various forms and various locations in Pembrokeshire until 1959 when it found its ideal site at the County Showground, where it remains today.

In 2015 the Society followed the route taken by the majority of agricultural societies to form a Company Limited by Guarantee and re-register as a charity, whose primary objective is to "promote, advance and improve for the benefit of the public, agriculture, horticulture and rural crafts and skills in all their branches".

The Society was formed as a limited company on July 14, 2014, and achieved charity status as the new company on February 17, 2015.

The Board of Directors of PAS Ltd are also its charity trustees enabling the Society to be compliant with both company and charitable law.

The day to day running of the Society is delegated to the Society's paid staff and managed by the Chief Executive. The Chief Executive reports to the Board of Directors which is responsible and accountable for the affairs and finances of the Limited Company that is the Society.

The Show Council acts in an advisory and consultative capacity, in all matters relating to the organisation's flagship event - the three-day Pembrokeshire County Show. The Council comprises of up to 50 elected members, Directors of PAS Ltd, the President and President-Elect.

The Society's objectives for public benefit are:

∙ To promote, advance and improve for the benefit of the public, agriculture, horticulture and rural crafts and skills in all their branches by the improvement of livestock and the demonstration and showing of livestock, machinery, crafts, products, methods and processes connected with agricultural education in particular by the holding of an annual show.

∙ To provide or assist in the provision of facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation or other leisure time occupation of individuals who have need of such facilities by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disability, financial hardship or social circumstances with the object of improving the conditions of their life.
